   PA-3042 - Rare Sarcophogus Panel - Ancient Egypt, c. 1070-712 BC


Anubis Sarcophogus Panel. Height: 198 mm – 7 7/8 inches, Width: 370 mm – 14 1/2 inches. A large and very attractive rectangular carved cypress wood panel with polychrome painting over gesso and residual remains of wood pins for attachment. The graphic scene shows two representations of the god Anubis facing each other, resting on pedestals; with hieroglyphic inscriptions. Translated: left column reads – “Words to be recited by Anubis, foremost of the divine booth, giving all things.” - Right column reads – “Words to be recited by Anubis, who is upon (his mountain), lord of the (sacred) land, giving all things.” Custom wood mount included. Provenance: Howard Rose Gallery, NYC, ex estate collection. Anubis, the jackal headed god is considered by many to be the most ancient of Egyptian gods. He judged the dead, weighing their souls to compare the good vs. evil they had done. An exceptional example of Egyptian art in a fine state of preservation!
